I write story books that are full of simplified scientific information in hopes to get my small child to understand why he needs to eat veggies, shower………and the list goes on.
I found that reading a book to my toddler really helps him understand and listen to what I tell him.
However there are very few books for small children (2-5yrs) about science and the ones I have found were not all written by scientists.
The ones I found didn’t help explain why they need to do certain things that we ask them to do like brushing their teeth from a scientific point of view.
Why scientific you ask, well I found that as a scientist when I explain in very a simplistic language the scientific reason behind something to my two year old son, he gets it. So why not start teaching science at an early age, it will help your child understand him/herself at a deeper level and hopefully cause fewer tantrums (fingers crossed- not promising anything here hehe).
Plus science is fun! – hehe spoken like a true scientist, but it is and I can prove it if you read my blog posts I write about the fun side of science in our daily life (i.e. chemistry of falling in love). Don’t worry I write in normal English so everyone can follow J
I am a biomedical scientist with a two year Masters in Technology Anthropology (basically explaining new science and technology to the public). I am forever learning , I always like to take new courses to improve myself. I have worked in hospitals and University. You can check out my CV on LinkedIn under my name Balkis Fares.
I love science and I also love being creative so that’s why I started this, hope you and your child find the info on my blog and eBooks helpful, fun and an enjoyable read.
Thanks for your support .
